The sixth generation of Motorola’s highly acclaimed Moto G series has launched in India. The Moto G6, initially launched back on Apilr 19th in Brazil has made its way to India for a starting price of Rs 13999. The Moto G6 is the successor to the Moto G5s which was launched in August 2017 and it will go on sale via Amazon exclusively.

The Moto G6 is a significant upgrade over the Moto G5s in terms of design and build quality. During the Moto G5s launch, there were premium smartphones with the 18:9 aspect ratio but, not many budget devices had adopted the feature. Since then, however, the 18:9 aspect ratio has become the norm across the board. The Moto G6 follows the norm as well and has thin bezels around the display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

A few years ago, most budget smartphones were flimsy and had a plastic build. That slowly transitioned into a metal unibody which is much more sturdier, if not the best-looking. 2018 appears to be the year of embracing the glass build quality. Honor did it with Honor 9 Lite and now Motorola has also adopted the all-glass design. The Moto G6 features Corning Gorilla Glass3 on the front and back with an aluminium frame. With the new design, the G6 will be a fingerprint magnet which means a skin or a case is highly recommended for people who like to keep their smartphones clean and pretty.

The G6 has a 5.7 inch LCD display with a 2160×1080. This translates into an 18:9 aspect ratio and thankfully for many, it doesn’t have a notch. Even though it has an 18:9 aspect ratio, the bezels are not the thinnest and it has a 74.4% screen-to-body ratio which is not very high.

Under the hood, the smartphone runs on the Snapdragon 450 chipset which has eight 1.8GHz Cortex A53 Cores (14nm) and is basically the rebranded Snapdragon 625. The Adreno 506 GPU adds the graphical prowess with either 3GB or 4GB RAM option bundled with a 32GB or 64GB storage option. The storage is expandable via a microSD card which will use up the second SIM slot.

The Moto G6 does get the USB C charging capabilities along with a 15W charger, which is bundled with a 3000mAh battery. The G6 will run close to stock Android 8 Oreo out of the box in typical Motorola fashion. There were talks of Motorola adopting Lenovo’s custom skin for the G and E series in 2018 but, it turned out to be a hoax.

At the back is a dual camera setup, consisting of a primary 12MP RGB sensor with an f/1.8 aperture along with a 5MP depth sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. Much like previous smartphones from the company, users can apply a depth-of-field effect to a photo after it is shot, thanks to the saved depth information. Users will also get effects like a selective black-and-white mode, a time-lapse feature, face filters, motion photos and visual search for objects and landmarks. The front houses a 16MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture and an LED flash.

The Moto G6 feels like a worthy upgrade over the Moto G5s. At this price point, however, the consumers also have the options of going for the Redmi Note 5 Pro or the Zenfone Max Pro which are powered by the Snapdragon 636. The G6 does have a better design with its a–glass build but, it’ll be interesting to see how the smartphone is received by the Indian consumers.
